On the other hand, in the exact same situation how about when you get where you're going the same un-initiated individual says "Holy Crap! That was incredible! Can you make me a copy?". Another one gets on the bus.

I think as time goes by, the music will become more "mainstream". For example, I eat at Chipotle often - and they play great tunes in there via a medium they circulate internally. Just the other day it was the GD ripping thru a Dr Mr Fantasy. Maybe Without a Net or maybe some other rendering, I don't know. But I think the mainsteam listener will happen - and it will be cause to just smile.

I sometimes think that perhaps there are more DeadHeads now than ever ... now we have children - and they'll pass it along too ... and the Music is more accessible. Like here we are on-line dling everything from last night through that Good Lovin from '66. I wonder about the future of the GD all the time. It's time you did to. Now go!

I was thinking about the future(others were too) a few weeks ago and wrote this...

It is really great that you are all on-board. AND, it is super to hear about all the kids who are hearing this stuff. WE are the ones who are perpetuating this legacy. Ya think Rhino has the 3-15 year-old demographic in mind for their marketing? Doubt it. A pat on the back to all you GD mommies and daddies out there!

Yes! It's funny to see little kids when their ears perk up "Jerry!?" -yep. Kids love to dance, it's that easy.

June 1985, sunday morning at a campground in the hills outside of Oakland. A young (about 3) friend very excited saying "Daddy, Daddy, let's go hear Jerry Daddy!!!) Golden moments!

It's just the campground in the Oakland Hills area which I am aware of. Shot in the dark, I guess...

It was a lot of fun until it was "discovered". Got a little crazy after that. The Park Rangers used to let us pay for one day and stay for a week! Lot's of fun and great Berkeley shows.

Got a laugh from your post. Don't know about you, but I didn't have disposable income to spend on music when I was 3. Perhaps thats the reason for Rhino's decision on their demographic targets. All in all, the Rhino lable has done a hell of a job in re-releasing alot of material that the majors won't touch. When it's all said and done, I think the end will justify the means. Peace

Yeah, you've got to put it out there, but fully realizing that to cast one's bread upon the waters means it may land in duck crap. I gave my daughter, a concert violinist, the show from Cape Cod 10/27/79...didn't intro or hype it...she came back raving and amazed. Sometimes you can see the light in the strangest of places etc.

I personally love it when the uninitiated "get it"...if even for just a few songs. That's b/c i've heard it from so many haters of the band over the years--(ever notice how people who dislike the Dead really just DESPISE the Dead, with a white-hot intensity that's just scary?)

I think there's little risk of having the phenomenon get overcrowded at this late date. What happened post-InTheDark from '87 til about the end was more of a scene-crashing thing; and I don't mean that anyone who got turned on to the Dead after '87 was a poser, BUT it was pretty easy to spot who was (Gate crashers--dead giveaway)...and it really just acted as a catalyst to bring about The End. (It would have come anyway given Jerry;s deteriorating health and relapses).

But THESE days, I see the Dead--dare I say it--fading away a little more each passing year. The hard cores--well, THEIR love will not fade away, and that;s beautiful.

but i doubt very much love for the band will ever be in danger of being overrun by too many ears, if you get my drift.

After reading the posts and thinking on it.....Start people off slowly, maybe one song, or one CD. Then if the boys eat into their heads, maybe offer a full show. MP3's are great for this, but some people are clueless and need audio files. It's tempting to fill a CD with mp3 shows and lay it on them, but it's overkill and loses the context of the music in time and place.
Also, a longtime Deadhead friend calls the Dead 'intelligent music' and we know what short supply intelligence is in, so.....
